Revolver | Cocktail Party


Revolver recipe with bourbon and coffee liqueur

This bourbon sipper has been gaining steam in craft cocktails around the world since barman Jon Santer introduced it to San Francisco sometime in the early 00s as part of a promotion for Bulleit bourbon (get it? Bulleit… in a Revolver! Ha!). Santer calls for Tia Maria in his recipe, but use whatever coffee liqueur you like. We think it’s especially nice with a hard-to-find liqueur called Firelight, made in the Bay Area from exceptionally fine coffee.



Stir with ice until chilled, and strain into a chilled cocktail glass. You could also serve it over ice in a short glass.

Garnish with a wide orange twist. Twist it over the drink first to get those tasty oils. If you really want to go the extra mile, heat the peel over a flame for a few moments, and then twist it into the drink over a match flame for a mini-fireworks show.

An awesome cocktail app with curated recipes

I'm shocked that there are no reviews listed for this app. I found it on reddit's cocktails forum. The drink list in this app is much shorter than in many of the other apps I've seen, but the quality and reliability of the recipes is much much higher. These are more like the drinks you would get at a good mixology bar instead of the drink equivalent of your aunt's jello fruit mold that people just "love." I much prefer a list of cocktails that are reliable, good and repeatable than a huge pile of garbage recipes. This app is great and delivers great, reliable cocktails.
